Ritual is a series that grew out of my interest and desire to communicate multifaceted ideas with minimal elements. Within this body of work, I concentrate on the delicate interplay of line, texture and shape combined with a limited color palette to evoke a sense of visual paradox and dichotomy in a two-dimensional space. While my approach is primarily instinctual and sensory, I consciously attempt to disrupt my own expectations throughout the process. Gradually, a visual language emerges; one that speaks in marks, symbols and phases. These paintings examine concepts of personal rituals and the interruption of those rituals, of cycles and the inherent anomalies that exists within.
